If I had to chose

Writing is one of my favorite things to do. when I was fifteen and through a good part of my adult hood working on cars was awesome, I still love it but it can get old not to mention frustrating, cars are so compact and complicated now. I hate busting skin and knuckles. I love my new rc heli and I have loved doing rc cars but of all of it, if I had to chose one- it would be to write. It is as satisfying to me as taking a completed car to a show or seeing my heli in the air or finishing a new rc crawler build. hearing someone likes my work is an awesome feeling. I have been working on my book for nearly two years. I have stumbled, paused, rewritten, lost some and hated some of it but I still continue. one day I will finish my book and it will be published even if I have to pay out of my pocket and give it away for Christmas, birthdays or go door to door to share the message (I've done that before).
If any of my blogging friends are interested I would love to share the link with you where I keep it as a google doc. I am also looking for some help busting it down into chapters so if anyone wants that task let me know. I know it is frustrating to read and wait for more to be written and I thank those of you who have been so patient, please keep it up, your input means the world to me. I am now at the half way point at 56000 words at least I hope I am, its hard to sell something new above 100k words.
none of my hobbies I have wanted to turn into a career until now. If I could make it happen I would love to do it with writing. my father in law jokes about me being able to make up a story as fast as I can tell it, writing it down just seemed like the next step so here we are. oh by the way if you ask for the link I will hound you for input so be sure you really want to read it.
(spoiler alert!!) its about a boy who becomes a member of a secret group who works to free all men from oppression and tyranny. there is magic and friendship, some romance, fighting, some chases, big jeeps, talking animals, free running, martial arts and sword fighting. its kind of like fantasy salsa, there are even some miss spelled words and really bad grammar. the best part is- if it sucks I make changes as I go so your input can make a big change in the story. i have not yet added dragons, fairies or gnomes but its not over yet so who knows. I do love gnomes in case you are looking for a birthday gift wink wink.

Is it true you love gnomes?

I probably should tell everyone how awesome your book is. We enjoy it. I love the parts that are so something jeremy says or does, makes me laugh. But yes, be prepared for mispelled words everyone, it's raw and wriggly. I hope you can someday have your hobby be your career.

it's true I do love gnomes, my collection so far only consists of a single gnome. i'm glad you like the book kristi right now I seem to be writing for an audience of two but thats enough to keep me writing.
